Imagine you are an Israelite. David has recently been anointed as King. He’s not a politician or a palace brat. He’s not the most handsome. He doesn’t come from money—but he’s hard working. He is a skilled soldier, battle tested, and God fearing. David is a man’s man, a man’s king. So he establishes his…

The news cycle the last several weeks has reminded me of something very important: There is no such thing as a “secret sin”. First, you can’t keep it secret from God. He knows. It’s not secret to Him. In Psalm 139:7-12 the psalmist writes, “Where can I go to escape Your Spirit? Where can I…

There is something special about being a Christian. Peters tells us that Christians “are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His possession, so that [we] may proclaim the praises of the One who called [us] out of darkness into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9).
